mnvikes8484 Posted September 6, 2012 Share Posted September 6, 2012 i think i have derbesia (pretty sure its not bryopsis not feathered looking) overrunning my 3g tank, ive been manually removing it and doing aggressive water changes and its still not going away. i dont have any pics readily available but it looks exactly like this http://www.reefcleaners.org/derbesia.jpg nuisance algae guide http://www.nano-reef.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=186736 suggests the common "GHA" crew, limpets, chitons (which my tanks is probably too small for plus i dont know where to buy one), or large hermits for controlling it. i have 2 astrea and 2 cerith snails, 3 hermits, at least 4-5 limpets that hitchhiked on my live rock and im still not getting rid of it. anyone else deal with this stuff and have any tips?
